This is the man who literally saved my life and set me on the right track – the path that would eventually lead me to become a comedian. Father Greg Boyle took a gun out of my hand and put me in rehab long before he created the infamous Homeboy Industries – an organization that helps turn former gang members’ lives around by giving them jobs, training and a purpose. Before that it was Jobs for the Future, and even before that, he was just a man with a mission to help local kids stop dying at the hands of other local kids. We only scratched the surface today, but know that if it wasn’t for this man, I probably wouldn’t be here today.
